Did Bestbuy get Apple Tv's today?

Curious if they got them on release day. They show sold out online and don't show an option for an in-store pick up. I'm not sure if that is due to their poor web site and inventory system. I have 80 dollars in Best Buy gift cards so I'd prefer to pick one up there then going to the local Apple Store.

Yes, I just picked one up at my local Best Buy. They had about 20 on-hand, even though they showed none in-stock online. Just be ready for the following conversation with the Best Buy employee (this was my actual conversation):

Me: "I'd like to purchase the new AppleTV"

BB: "We don't have those. Apple doesn't make a TV. Do you mean an iPad?"

Me: "No, let me show you where they are."
